Numbeo allows you to see, share and compare information about food prices worldwide and provides an estimate of the minimum amount of money required for food per person per day.
Our recommended minimum amount of money for food is based on the prices of the articles we collect and a 2300-calorie diet. We provide information for two food baskets, one for Western and another for Asian food types. According to our research, if a person has less money for food than our recommendation, he lives below the poverty line.
